Three More for the Fox
You will find that the State is the kind of organization which, though it does big things badly, does small things badly, too.
–John Kenneth Galbraith
Firefox is quickly becoming the one tool I cannot live without. While it works fine as a web browser, its plugin functionality has locked me in. Now that I am using twitter fairly regularly, I wanted a quick and easy was to post tweets from within Firefox and, often, specifically related to the website I am visiting. I found two:
- TwitterFox – Is the most complete and easy to use twitter tool I have found. Keyboard shortcuts for opening, viewing, and inserting URLs. All URLs are auto-decoded and long URLs are automatically tinyURLed. Even the pop-up box is attractive and unobtrusive.
- TwitterBar — When you need an even faster way to tweet… simply type your tweet into the address bar of Firefox and put –post at the end. POW, you have a new post.
